Sonoma Partners, a leading Microsoft Dynamics CRM consultancy with expertise in enterprise mobility, announced today that the company has been named to the 2012 Best Places to Work in Illinois. The statewide survey and awards program was designed to recognize the best places of employment in the state of Illinois that benefit the state’s economy, workforce and businesses.

Known for delivering innovative projects for its customers, Sonoma Partners provides its employees a unique work environment that includes:

  • A flexible “work from anywhere” policy
  • Bi-weekly open-discussion company meetings
  • Monthly company events, including lunches and happy hours
  • Paid time off for employee’s birthdays
  • Unique office space with employee lounge and arcade
  • Free drinks and snacks

To be considered for the distinction, Sonoma Partners entered into a two-part process, the first of which involved evaluating the company’s workforce policies, practices and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience.

“Attracting and retaining top talent is critical to the work we have done and continue to do at Sonoma Partners,” said Mike Snyder, principal of Sonoma Partners. “This designation is a testament to the environment our employees have created in Chicago over the last 11 years.”

The registration and survey process was managed by Best Companies Group, which analyzed the data to determine final rankings, which were announced at an awards ceremony at the Hyatt Hotel Lisle on May 17.
